About the Book

Most of us suffer from the odd gap in our knowledge. But what if those gaps happen to be gaping chasms that threaten to cave in if not soon filled? Worry not, for the answer is at hand. Reading, Writing and Arithmetic harks back to a golden age of teaching, providing a comprehensive introduction to the three Rs: the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic. With everything from reading efficiently and mastering grammar, to grasping paper and mental arithmetic, this comprehensive tome rallies through the gamut of fascinating content, including: Grammar tests; How to write and form letters properly; Exercises for mastering fractions, decimals and rounding to the nearest; Tips for tackling everyday maths conundrums, such as adding bills and working out percentages and much more besides!
In a fitting tribute to the education system of yesteryear, this nostalgic book provides a solid foundation in the key areas of learning that will mean everything else just falls into place.
